Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

Well, Sabby did it again.

She and Dave decided they want to have a romantic getaway tomorrow for Valentine’s day.  They haven’t been able to do that for a while because Beth and David were young and they didn’t trust them on their own, even though Beth is probably old enough for that now.  But I’m here now!  So, They’re going to go somewhere tomorrow and come back the next morning.  And I’m in charge!

I’ve been in charge before – remember when we went to Houston?  But not quite like this.  I’ll have to make (well, order) lunch and dinner, and make sure everyone’s doing their schoolwork, and do mine, and take care of anything that comes up.  It won’t be a huge deal unless one of them throws a fit.  I hope that doesn’t happen.  Beth’s gotten a little more mellow since that time we had to go to the homeless shelter.  But David…  he’s still kind of… being David.  Not a bad kid, but…  wants things his way.  And he’s not really too happy about having to listen to me.

So we’ll see how it turns out.  I guess it’ll be okay.  Sabby knows I’m pretty responsible.

We had fun last night playing games!!!  We played twister!  We’d never played twister before!  Beth’s pretty flexible!  So am I!  Liz… isn’t.  She ended up getting a cramp and we all fell all over each other.  It was glorious!  Around 11 or so Sabby told us to cut it out, she’s trying to sleep.  We played a quieter game for an hour then made a girl-pile.  Did I mention I like girl-piles?  Everyone’s so warm and smells like soap!

Whenever I tell Jack about our girl-piles he’s strangely quiet.  Boys…  He’s a nice boy and I love him.. but.. he’s still a boy.  Sabby tells me boys come with… well, boy-ness, and we just have to deal with it and make sure they know what our boundaries are.  Jack’s been really good about that, but you can tell he still, well, thinks boy things sometimes.

Sometimes I’m glad for that.

Today Dave and David plonked themselves in front of the TV and watched the big game!  I don’t see what the big deal is!  Just a bunch of guys smacking into each other and throwing a ball!  But they were really into it!  Yelling and cheering and having a good time.  Their team won!

Anyway, another week starts!  It’s starting to warm up a little and the weather will soon change from cold fronts blowing through every other day, to cold fronts blowing through every other day and making storms!  Storms are fun!  Sometimes!  That hailstorm last year wasn’t fun!

I’m working on doing streaming and YouTube stuff!  I’ve been working on it for a while, but there’s a lot to learn!  I’ll get it soon!!!

Love you all!!!  ❤
